When his Candice Dawson trained daughter HERSTEL won at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday, she became Klawervlei Stud’s inform stallion CAPTAIN OF ALL’s fourth winner since Friday.
Bred by the Klawervlei Grooms Trust, four-year-old Herstel unleashed an impressive turn of foot, under Luke Ferraris, to score by a neck over 1000m.
The daughter of Captain Of All, who was making her Greyville debut on Wednesday, has now won three of just eight starts for owners Chris Van Niekerk and Ralphs Racing.
Her sire Captain Of All, whose flagbearers this season include G1 Jonsson Workwear Cape Derby winner LINEBACKER, has been in good form of late, with his other recent winners including LADY CATHERINE (at Fairview on Friday), impressive two-year-old WARRIOR CAPTAIN (at Turffontein on Saturday), and FOXY LADY (at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Monday).
South Africa’s Leading First Season Sire of 2018-2019, Captain Of All has eight lots on offer at the upcoming National Yearling Sale, including a three-parts sister (Lot 8) to G3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery winner COUSIN LIZ (Captain Al), a half-brother (Lot 91) to G3 Cape Classic runner up CAPTAIN TATTERS (Gimmethegreenlight), and a half-brother (Lot 101) to speedy sorts SCANDAL (Muhtafal) and HUMIDOR (Miesque’s Approval).
